Having all things set, the Municipal Information and Communications Technology Office (MICTO) is now ready to launch the first ever Baliwag Mobile Application in July 2017 as it aims to bring the town closer by just a tap away to its people.
MICTO launched the said mobile application called BALIWAG APP last February 2017 and it was used as an interoffice application but it is currently converting into a more complex system to serve more clients. This mobile app, which is available to Android devices, features a tab wherein users can read the latest news about Baliwag and other related articles. MICTO also eyes to make the Baliwag App available to IOS users.
The application also has a dedicated traffic section where users can subscribe to traffic updates especially in choke points in Baliwag. Baliwag Transit schedule, tricycle fare matrix, weather forecast, as well as job opening section under the PESO office will also be featured in the application.
Schools, churches, and business establishments will also be given their dedicated tabs wherein users can easily access their respective directories and other pertinent information.
The application was the brainchild of the team led by Mayor Ferdie V. Estrella, together with Municipal Administrator Enrique V. Tagle, and in full cooperation with the information and communications office led by MICTO head Brainard Ardoña.
